We found this beautiful moth on our North Idaho ranch about 60 miles south of the Canadian boarder. In our 40 years here we have never seen anything like it. Is this a Columbia Silk Moth?

Hi C,
This is a close relative of the Columbia Silkmoth, the Ceanothus Silkmoth, Hyalophora euryalus. It is found in the western states.
